28/01/2021 | 09:18:33 Thank you, Mister President. I think we should not call this Assembly a "puppet dog". It is a meeting of the national parliaments of 47 Member States. I think we should pay respect to the essence of the Assembly. Mister President, our rules allow members to challenge credentials of a national delegation at the beginning of each year, but having this right does not say that you always have to use it. Challenging credentials should serve a concrete goal. The right ought not be used time and... 27/01/2021 | 17:13:27 Thank you, Madam President. Several colleagues here say this is not a debate about Mr Alexei Navalny but about much more. But I want to disagree. This is a debate on the arrest of Mr. Navalny. That's the title of the debate, and it's what Mr Navalny deserves – this debate – because he has been arrested for political reasons. That is the subject of this debate. Madam President, most of us in this Assembly do not have close relations to Mr. Navalny. Only a few, I assume, do know him in person... 26/01/2021 | 18:14:37 Thank you, Mister President. First, let me say thank you to the rapporteur, who presented his report that was endorsed by the Rules Committee as the final stage of a long process. It was aimed, this whole process, at giving this Assembly real influence in the future in cases of blatant violations of a member State of our statute or European Convention on Human Rights. Mister President, we all are aware that until now this Assembly does not have a real means to ensure being involved in such... 26/01/2021 | 09:24:51 Thank you, Mr President, and let me first thank you thank our rapporteur, Mr Constantinos EFSTATHIOU, for what is in our view an excellent report. I will make some general remarks with regard to the report and come to some specific judgments, which are very worrying - the non-execution of these judgments. First, if you read Mr EFSTATHIOU's report, you realise how unique this construction is: 47 States under one Court. And the good news is that a lot of the judgments made by our court here in... 25/01/2021 | 17:21:16 Thank you very much, Mr President. First, my compliments to Mr Michael Aastrup JENSEN for the fact that he wrote this report on behalf of the Monitoring Committee and that he got re-elected. Once again, he did a great job last year, in the last difficult year, and I'm confident he will do a great job this year. The Monitoring Committee has adopted this report with large support. I compliment the rapporteur for this report as it is an appropriate summary of the report made by our co...
